The BSHS is always looking for opportunities to start dialogues that involve the history of science. We organize conferences, workshops, seminars and outreach events for audiences ranging from schoolchildren to adults, and we are developing lots of new ideas for events in the history of science.
BSHS Conference Grants
With the Three Societies meeting in July 2012 and the International Congress in Manchester in July 2013, the BSHS is not running an annual conference in either of these years. As such, we are offering the opportunity to organize a BSHS conference on any aspect of the history of science broadly conceived. We are looking for strongly themed conferences and can offer a grant of up to £2000, as well as administrative support. Conferences must be held before the end of 2013. The BSHS Programmes Committee will start viewing proposals from 30th July 2012. Applicants must be members of the BSHS. For further information please contact: email@example.com or download the application form [Word document].
Do you have an idea that you think would be useful as a BSHS event?
Are you trying to organize an event and would like the BSHS to help organize it with you, or provide some support?
We can offer different forms of support depending on what you or your organization/institution need.
1. BSHS-organized event.
These are events that the BSHS is willing to take care of all the administration, programme, publicity and budget.
2. Joint event
These events are organized by the BSHS with one or more partners who share the organization, budget, publicity and programme arrangements to reach the widest possible audience.
To help with planning and to adhere to our legal responsibilities, we ask to be involved with the planning and decision-making, to see the proposed budget and to be represented on publicity.
3. Financial Sponsorship
If you want a financial contribution to your event or have already begun to organize the event, the BSHS can help with support that can be used in a flexible way in helping to finance the event.
All we ask is that the BSHS is recognized as a contributing sponsor in literature associated with the event. We typically offer financial support of between £50 and £250 for events.
4. Technical (in-kind) sponsorship
Non-financial support that helps with publicity, administration or programme advice for the event.
All we ask is that the BSHS support is recognized in literature associated with the event.
If you would like to seek one of these forms of support or have an idea that you think we will be interested in, please contact the Outreach Chair (firstname.lastname@example.org) for events related to public dialogue, outreach and education, or the Programmes Committee (email@example.com) for events related to conferences, workshops, seminars, or symposia.
